We stayed here on 5/3 and were VERY satisfied with our accomodations. Yes, it is a bit outdated......but the king room overlooking the roaring river more than makes up for that. The room was squeaky clean, the front desk very nice. We had one issue with our bathtub, no stopper in the tub, but they immediately took care of this....

Utterly disgusting, worst night ever......paid $68 for all that too.....what a waste

We got a week night special there for $49 plus tax. It was a very clean room hanging over a roaring creek. We also had a fireplace. The management there is very nice and helpful. We for sure recommend this place and will continue to go there.

Great location in Gatlinburg unfortunately the rooms are in need of serious repair!! Bathroom was not clean. The wall heater was very loud. Very outdated hotel. You definitely get what you pay for with this location. Staff was friendly and helpful.

My sister and her family checked into another room and it was a disaster. Room wasn't ready until 4:30pm. Desk clerk got into a verbal argument with the...

My husband and I have been going to Gatlinburg for 40 years. We have watched it grow from the charming, quaint village to the overwhelmingly popular tourist stop that it is today. We found Rocky Waters two years ago, even though it has been there for many years. It is old, the furniture is well used, but the bed was...

Rocky Waters Hotel is one of the oldest in Gatlinberg, my family has stayed here beginning in the 50s so there is a lot of history. Pros include covered parking, balconies right on river and convenient to most every thing. Cons include outdated rooms. They do offer a free continental breakfast but you have to go across river to their...
